Train travel

There are 4 of us traveling from the Zurich airport to Lech Austria for two weeks then to Wengen Switzerland for a week then back to the Zurich airport. What is the best method of purchasing train tickets?

Put in Zurich airport, St Anton am Arlberg, and your date of travel and you will see your options.
Looks like full fare is 59 CHF, but there is a nonrefundable, nonchangeable ticket offered for 29 CHF. If you miss your train, that ticket becomes worthless. I've done this, leaving about 4 hours from flight arrival and train departure and I lucked out. You can take an earlier train to Zurich Hbf, store your luggage in a locker and nose around Zurich until the your train to St Anton departs. At St Anton, get a bus to Lech.
You can also get something off the train to Wengen, since the St Anton-Zurich leg is subject to discounts.
Wengen to Zurich airport might also have a nonrefundable discount by clicking the "Supersaver" button when you go through the ticket purchase process.
